City Council to Hold Public Hearing Dedicated to Cobbs Hill Village Legislation
May 9, 2018 at 6:00 pm in City Council Chambers (30 Church Street)
Last week, the Rochester City Council received for consideration Introductory Number 150, legislation related to Cobbs Hill Village. While there is no requirement for public comment on this project, the Council has selected to hold a Public Hearing on this legislation because of significant community interest.
The Public Hearing will be held on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at 6:00 pm in City Council Chambers (30 Church Street). Individuals wishing to speak, will sign up at the hearing. Individuals do not need to sign up in advance for this Public Hearing
“The Cobbs Hill Village project has generated significant community input already, and as a Council we wanted to make sure that every voice was heard,” said Neighborhood and Business Development Committee Chair, Michael A. Patterson, “This Public Hearing will provide a dedicated time for the community to talk about this legislation.”
“As a body, Council has used information gathered from the public to inform our deliberation and decision making,” said Council President Loretta C. Scott, “We know that our citizens have valuable information to share, and we look forward to hearing from the community on this matter.”

Over the weekend a young man, perhaps 12 – 13 years old, was going door to door in the Upper Monroe seeking ‘product orders for a fundraiser for the School of the Arts band field trip’. When he said he could only accept cash, our neighbor told him they’d contact the school on Monday to make a direct contribution in his name…School of the Arts reports they have NO such fundraiser. On at least one account, he claimed his name was Marcus.
While we don't want to discourage your support of legitimate causes, we pass this along as a reminder to pay attention to the red flags.
Thank you to everyone that has already contributed to keeping our neighborhood vibrant!
